Just to walk in the rain through town past the over built one-way system with drivers stuck in fuming traffic, past the speed bumps, sign posts, flashing screens telling you to slow down, past the no smoking campaign posters, past the people queueing out the bank at lunch time trying to deal with the solitary cashier (the rest replaced my machines that don't work or understand questions). Past the fast food joint where the hydroginsed, re-constituted, re-gurgitated crap is rapped in five layers of plastic, past the new small town pestco supermarket store which has sprung up because the small shops closed 10 years ago under pressure from the supermarket superstore which now has in/out town high/off street stores.
